A DOG attack on a ram cost a woman more than $2000 when her case was heard in Mandurah Magistrates Court today.

Amanda Jackson (37) entered an endorsed guilty plea to dog in a place without consent and person liable for a dog attack on a person or animal.

The Shire of Waroona prosecutor said a man was working in a shed on October 22 and heard his Jack Russell dog barking.

The man came out to see two dogs in his yard.

The male dog, a Dogue de Bordeaux named Brutus, was attacking a male sheep.

The ram sustained puncture wounds and the man was able to secure the dogs in a yard.

Magistrate Anne Longden said Jackson had re-homed the dogs because she was unable to contain them. Jackson had also paid for the vet bills.
